BSAC Technology Seminar - Optical Biomimetics: Harnessing Nature's Solutions Toward Multifunctional Nanophotonic Devices

540 Cory Hall
  • Dr. Radwanul Hasan Siddique, Postdoctoral Scholar, California Institute of Technology, Dept. of Medical Engineering
Nanoscopic photonic structures are often superior to synthetic analogs. Biophotonic nanostructures in butterfly wings show unique optical properties. Biomimetic nanophotonic devices can provide novel solutions in energy and health care. Optically outstanding biophotonic structures fulfill various functions: mechanical integrity and protection against external contaminants such as microbes.

The Lovász theta function for random regular graphs

1011 Evans Hall
  • Jess Banks, UC Berkeley
The Lovász theta function is a classic semidefinite relaxation of graph coloring. In this talk I'll discuss the power of this relaxation for refuting colorability of uniformly random degree-regular graphs, as well as for distinguishing this distribution from one with a `planted' disassoratative community structure. We will see that the behavior of this refutation scheme is consistent with the...

Learning in Google Ads, Machines and People

1011 Evans Hall
  • Niall Cardin, Google
This talk is in two parts, both of which discuss interesting uses of experiments in Google search ads. In part 1 I discuss how we can inject randomness into our system to get causal inference in a machine learning setting. In part 2. I talk about experiment designs to measure how users learn in response to ads on Google.com.

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: EUV Lithography: the Road to HVM and Beyond

521 Hogan Room Cory Hall
  • Dr. Anthony Yen, ASML Lithography
Development of EUV lithography for high-volume manufacturing started in early 2000s. In 2018, 250W of source power became available in the field, giving EUV exposure systems a throughput of >140 wph at an exposure dose of 20 mJ/cm2. Concurrently, the rate of power degradation due to collector contamination has been driven down so that high system throughput can be maintained. Based on this and...

Toward Perfect 1D Conduction in Magnetic Topological Insulators: Nano Seminar Series

390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building
  • Prof. David Goldhaber-Gordon, Stanford University, Physics
I will explain what is "perfect" 1D conduction and describe several strategies for achieving it. Some require high magnetic fields and/or cryogenic temperatures, but there's now hope of achieving perfect 1D conduction at room temperature with no external magnetic field, through a phenomenon known as the quantum anomalous Hall effect. This effect was recently realized in thin films of Cr-doped...
